After three seasons at Union College, Detroit Red Wings prospect Jack Adams is on the move. Adams missed the entire 2019-20 season due to a torn ACL and MCL suffered in Detroit development camp, and has been seeking a fresh start this off-season. He has finally announced that he will join Providence College this season with two years of NCAA eligibility remaining.
Adams, 23, is a hulking power forward who was selected in the sixth round by the Red Wings in 2017. The 6’6″ right wing recorded 35 points in 66 games with Union through his first two seasons and now takes his two-way talents to PC. It’s a program that Jack is familiar with, as older brother Mark Adams spent five years in Providence, including winning an NCAA Championship in 2015.
The current iteration of the Friars may not be a title favorite, but is still home to eight NHL draft picks, now including Adams. Up front, Adams will join fellow Eastern Conference prospects Brett Berard (NYR), Patrick Moynihan (NJD), Tyce Thompson (NJD), and Chase Yoder (PIT), a group that could grow more dangerous if they all stay through next season.
